American Miles Expiring Soon? Here is Quick & Easy Way to Protect Them

American Airlines AAdvantage miles expire after 18 (I think) months of inactivity in the account. So you need to either add or subtract at least one frequent-flyer mile every year or so.

This promotion takes, literally, just 2 minutes and will earn you 350 miles. That’s only about 1% of what you need for a r/t flight in the US, but it’s more than enough to protect your existing miles.

Scroll down past the contest to the section named “Earn 350 AAdvantage Bonus Miles.” Then pick an event (Wedding, Anniversary, Other, etc.) and a date. You can be truthful if you like.

If desired, you can continue on with a post to Facebook or Twitter and get another 350 miles.

This promotion is scheduled to end at 12PM CDT on June 1, 2016.
